Social Media | Platform-Specific Style Guidelines

Facebook

Platform voice: The most “warm and fuzzy” platform. Tone and voice should reflect a P&G Olympics commercial where you’re left with a “feel-good” feeling.

    • Image sizing: 1200X630
    • Video sizing: 1280×720/16:9 aspect ratio (landscape) and 720×1280/9:16 aspect ratio (portrait).

Engagement Style: Respond to questions and feedback in your inbox. Reply and react – appropriately – to comments on your posts. When possible, responses to complaints should be moved to direct messages or email.

Twitter

Platform Voice: The most laid-back, jovial platform. Twitter is the platform where playful snark/sarcasm can be implemented in light-hearted ways.

Best Practices: The majority of tweets should be accompanied by media.

  • Image sizing: 1200X675 or 16:9 aspect-ratio
  • Vertical photos no longer crop on mobile, so you can post full vertical photos.
  • Video sizing: 1280×720 (landscape), 720×1280 (portrait) and 720×720 (square).
  • ADA compliance/captions: Utilize Twitter Media Studio to add closed captioning, video descriptions and any relevant call-to-action links.

  • Image sizing: 1080x1080 (square), 1080x566 (landscape), 1080x1350 (portrait) and 1920x1080 (story).
